I just built a trainer .40 and working on a heavily modified corostar.These planes are great in my opinion for what they are.
my corostar is the best landing plane ive ever had! its been converted to electric, so that probably helps with the weight a bit. but it sets down SO smooth. its become one of my all-time favorites. i call mine "ole-blue", cause its pretty ugly, but i love it. ill never sell it. i had a bad crash awhile back, battery went dead for some reason. but it went into some small trees HARD, and there was hardly any damage. broke the prop and shuved mud into the motor and broke like 10 rubber bands for the wing to break off. took the motor apart & cleaned it out, and re-mounted a wing servo, and that was all. it pretty much did no damage to the plane. but i love the way it flys, and cant believe how it just lands itself. ill post some pics now that this thread has gotten some attention.

heres some pics. i used a cool-aid jar for a cowl. and it still has dirt on one of the wings from the crash. i paid $10 for the bare airframe at perry swap meet. my buddy gave me the motor & servos. so i have hardly any money in the plane.

Cool pilot. I never have a pilot in my planes, it is too dangerous.

Yeah thats a really cool pilot :-). I like your cowel also Im working out some different ideas myself to add things to my cory to give it a more scale look.I have tons of sheets of coroplast in many different thicknesses.I was going to attempt to round out the fuse a little.It easy to get wound up on drawing table ideas and not finish one.This is a great thread though.Lets keep it going.

I've been building uncut replacement parts for the corostar If any of you guys need any thing There all in white of course.I have also made some of the bulk heads out of thicker chloroplasts I found some of the kit pieces to be a little flimsy.
